Green Expo at National Sports Center on April 22

The cities of Blaine and Coon Rapids and the National Sports Center invite one and all to the 8th annual Green Expo, to be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., on April 22, at the National Sports Center, in Blaine.

More than 65 local exhibitors, ranging from energy specialists to governmental and educational resources, will share sustainability ideas, products and services to promote sustainable living in Minnesota. The Green Expo seeks to present information, resources, services and products that promote healthier, more ecologically sound lifestyles as well as educate attendees about the environmental impacts of consumer actions and choices.

Booths, displays and activities from local and regional sustainability-focused businesses will be featured. There will be a kids’ hands-on activity presented by The Home Depot and a variety of prize giveaways.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their no-longer-used sporting equipment for the Gear Grab. People can donate items that no longer fit their lifestyle and/or pick up new-to-you gear for the upcoming season. This is a great way to recycle usable sporting equipment, moving these items from non-use to use.
